before last week's debate. we're coming out with new polls right afterwards. and what they show is that there has been some movement in mitt romney's direction since his debate performance last week. but not a whole lot. so in the state of virginia which actually had their biggest movement, president obama last week was up two points, 48% to 46%. now it's mitt romney at 1%, 48%, 47% and this is all in the margin of error. in florida, it's president obama went in to the debate last week up 1% in the state. he remains up 1%, 48% to 47%. and in ohio, the last week right before the debate, he was leading mitt romney by eight points. now it's six points, 51% to 45%. >> so we're seeing some of the shift after the debate, although it's not a significant shift in numbers. but how is the white house reacting to the new numbers coming out? >> i think they're pretty comforted by them. they see that mitt romney was able to make some marginal gains but nothing that substantially transformed the race. now, of course, they need a good debate performance from joe biden tonight, two more solid d

strategy has been to paint romney as an out of touch rich guy. we have seen tightening in the polls in the last few days in ohio and throughout the country in the wake of mitt romney's very strong debate performance. i think what we are now seeing is the obama campaign strategy, which is to paint mitt romney as you cannot trust him. saw eight years ago when the election came down to ohio and the bush campaign was very successful in painting john kerry, the challenger, as a flip-flopper. guest: so many similarities between 2004 and 2008. whether it's george w. bush or the campaigns in the state are very similar. host: marie is on the phone from cleveland, ohio. caller: i have been in cleveland all my life. i heard your guests talking about hamilton. hamilton yes, hamilton county is a heavily republican state, but there are lot of democrats also in hamilton. i am part of cuyahoga county. i believe president obama will take ohio. i believe a lot of it has to do with the auto industry and the people that supply the parts to that industry along with the fact that no one trusts romney in
